Charles Wallace India Trust Fellowship


Fellowship

The Charles Wallace India Trust fellowship at CRASSH offers funding for a term of study and residence in Cambridge during the academic year.  The scheme is intended for earlier-career academics from India (defined as resident and domiciled in India, normally between the ages of 25 and 45 years). Applicants should have been in full-time academic employment in an Indian university or research institute of equivalent standing for at least five years and have completed a PhD.

The Charles Wallace India Trust gives grants to Indians in the early or middle stages of their careers who are living in India and working or studying in the arts, heritage conservation or the humanities. The grants enable successful applicants to achieve their artistic, academic or professional ambitions through spending time in the United Kingdom. Full information about the various types of grants available, and guidance on eligibility and how to apply, can be found on the website of the British Council in India: http://www.britishcouncil.org/india-scholarships-cwit.htm

The competition to select a Fellow for 2017-18 is now closed. Dr Ananay Vajpeyi (Centre of Study for Developing Science, Delhi) has been appointed.
